Staff Housing Overview

In November of 2015, Roaring Fork Schools passed a voter-approved $122 million bond for capital construction, improvements, and upgrades. A total of $15 million ($5 million per community) was allocated and used to build 66 rental housing units. The staff housing program is part of the district’s effort to make living in the Roaring Fork Valley more affordable for our teachers and other staff members. These rental units will allow employees to remain with the district without market housing conditions forcing them away. Hopefully, they will also provide a bridge to permanent housing as the affordable nature will allow staff to save money for future home purchases. You can read the full Staff Housing Guidelines here.
